There's a difference between perfection and ideal. While perfection is virtually impossible, an ideal experience is achieved through hard work, tenacity, grace and sincerity. These are all exemplified in the new managers of Almondy Inn. The location alone is reason enough to book here, but the elegant breakfasts, super lux linens and beds and jacuzzi baths seal the deal. Daily wine and cheese at 5:00, on site parking (a real plus in Newport) and a variety of room offerings ranging from suites with working fireplace to ours which was just big enough for a king bed and a few bags (but DID have water views). The Inn itself is still being polished and will keep reminding, bath salts in the room, please... but these are nits. My only fear is that it will become overly popular and we'll have a hard time finding dates next time.
